Gotta love a Pope who is willing to be a maverick! I don't always agree with him, but half a loaf is better than none.

This can bear being repeated OFTEN:
82% of Fossil Fuel Reserves must be LEFT IN THE GROUND - 82%! -
if we are to avert Climate CATASTROPHE due to Global Warming.

NO MORE drilling, coal mining, fracking,
and transporting, leaking and spilling and exploding,
and BURNING and spewing into the Atmosphere.
NO MORE exploration for new sources!
This should be Environmentalists' MANTRA:
I LIKE that! "Hurricane Francis"

This summer, he intends to deliver a powerful papal encyclical putting the moral energy of the church solidly behind the urgent imperative to end the industrial pollution that’s causing global warming.

Well Hallelujah! Is good to have the head of a large religious institution to say, PEOPLE must take responsibility in their actions.......rather than this God will come down and fix everything.....or God isn't going to allow this. Far too many have just sat back and accepted no responsibility because it's in Gods hands forgetting God gave them a brain and hands to use!

Even worse from the Right Wing Fundamentalist that believe all this extra carbon is good for them. Just ask all the ones inhaling it from their exhaust in their rolling coal trucks. ..........yes, more dead brain cells so they will not have brains enough left to fight the kockroaches. Talk about fools!

Someone needs to take down the Kochroach Brothers.......

I wish it was true, I really do. I wish those corporate climate change deniers would cower before this Pope, but I fear they will take little notice of him. I'm just as happy as everyone else with what Pope Francis is saying on poverty, climate change, sexual abuse in his own church, Palestinians... but it hasn't really had much effect yet, has it, not even within the Catholic church. He's fighting corruption within his own realm, in the Vatican and it's bank and clergy, but has made little or no headway. His speeches are absolutely wonderful and give a lot of people hope, but I've yet to hear of changes that have occurred as a result.

There's no doubt in my mind that Pope Frances really means all the things he says, they come straight from the heart, but I don't think the Roman Catholic Church as an Institution is ready to change yet because it is still in the grip of the power of money, and that is exactly the means by which the Kochs and other dirty-energy corporations rule their world, and ours. They'll think Frances a nuisance, but will throw a few more millions at ads, lobbyists and politicians and soon Hurricane Frances' words will be forgotten as he prepares for his next topic.

anything to stop the world environmental if he'd just support discussions about how to stop ongoing over-population

That he is adding his voice to the fray is still another voice Lona. We do not know how many ears he is reaching, we do not know how many eyes are now seeing because of his words. We don't know how many minds he has planted seeds in that take some time to root and grow where their actions will come forward in the future at some point.

This is what keeps me going, that I drop the pebble in, and my voices reaches far fewer people, but once that is dropped into the universe or onto the internet, that it is now is something that is offsetting the other and I also do not know how many eyes will see, how many dandelion seeds I've spread that are taking root to bring us to a better place.

Each action is worthy......each action does count. I truly believe that. Else we might as well throw our hands up and let the entities like the kockroachses roll over us without complaint.

The Australian Prime Minister wants to sell more brown coal to China to make more pollution and refuses to increase renewable energy here.

This atheist is very much looking forward to what this Pope will lay out.
Long may the science deniers suffer!

As much as I wish it were true, it's a proven fact that most corporate CEOs not only have NO morals, but are downright narcissistic and psychopathic, so they don't give a hoot or a holler about what the pope says. HOWEVER, if he is capable of turning the millions and millions of people under his care away from constant consumption and fossil fuel use, that loss of money in their pocketbooks might have an effect.
